Re: Request for comments: usage of tags
[I think this is the only mailing list I'm on that doesn't do
Reply-To, so I always forget to Reply All.]
This is an interesting idea. I'm not sure if I'd like it. The @
signs are pretty common in other apps for marking some kind of
contextual info, like "context" in GTD apps. I actually wouldn't mind
if # signs could be used for a separate tag namespace, but that's
As long as the tags are colored, they should still be recognizable.
But I think it would be a little more confusing for new users. I also
wonder about color-blind users: for them the color might not be
enough, depending on their color preferences. If you do implement
this, I think it should be optional.
